Curandero (2005)

Curandero - a traditional Native American healer or shaman in Latin America, who is dedicated to curing physical or spiritual illnesses. So near and yet so far. Those were my feelings towards Eduardo Rodriguez's feature length debut…

The Liability (2012)

The Hit is a 1984 British crime drama featuring Tim Roth's debut movie performance, playing a hot headed accomplice to John Hurt's world weary hitman. Now, nearly thirty years later, Roth's debut role is reversed in another British crime…

The Bigfoot Tapes (2012)

As much as I love The Blair Witch Project, it has a lot to answer for. While it wasn't the first found footage movie, with Cannibal Holocaust predating it by nearly two decades, it certainly popularised the subgenre. The huge profits and…

Evil Dead (2013)

Something horrible is coming, something evil, with no soul or pity, it wants to manipulate you, take something you hold dear and turn it inside out, draining it of all that is good, it is.... yet another remake of a much loved, classic…

Zaytoun (2012)

The Israelis and the Palestinians don't like one another. There, in that one ridiculously simplistic statement, is the total sum of my knowledge regarding the Israel/Palestine conflict. Being that it is set in Beirut immediately prior to…

Sightseers (2012)

Ben Wheatley's stark and startling hitman horror flick Kill List was my favourite movie of 2011 by some margin, combining a grim kitchen sink authenticity with a nightmarish, otherworldly atmosphere of dread to stomach churning, emotionally…

Thale (2012)

Following in the (really bloody big) footsteps of cult Norwegian fantasy/horror flick Troll Hunter is Thale, another fantastical, peculiar creature feature wrangled from Norwegian folklore. Being one of very few people who didn't particular…

Crawlspace (2012)

Aussie action-horror flick Crawlspace shares its hoary, well worn plot with both James Cameron's magnificent sci fi-horror Aliens and Paul WS Anderson's less magnificent, dumbass video game adaptation Resident Evil, as an elite team of…

Manborg (2011)

Despite some seriously heavyweight contenders in the likes of The Dark Night Rises, Prometheus and The Avengers, my favourite movie of 2012 was (by a staggering margin I might add) a borderline reprehensible little $10,000 exploitation…

Stitches (2012)

CLOWN. If you're currently staring at a blank page, attempting to brainstorm ideas for a horror flick, the word clown at the top of said page might be a good start. Of all the people I've met with specific fears and phobias, those who…
